a blurred street scene

What do we see?

In answer to the question ‘What does a visually impaired child see?’ the Thomas Pocklington Trust has produced a new video simulating the 5 most commonly seen forms of vision impairment in children and young people, including nystagmus. The film, What do we see? 2, shows what it’s like to have nystagmus, retinitis pigmentosa, infantile or juvenile cataracts, retinopathy of prematurity and optic atrophy. Footage was recorded in a school setting.

Members of the Nystagmus Network forum for adults living with congenital nystagmus viewed the first draft of the nystagmus simulation and helped shape the final version. We are very grateful for their feedback.

TPT said: “Thank you so much for all your support and guidance throughout the making of this. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
